CNN’s Dana Bash said on “Inside Politics” Wednesday that President Trump retweeting videos showing alleged Muslim violence gives her a stomach ache.
Bash, in reference to Trump retweeting videos from a British anti-Islamist group, said, “The only people who are supporting what the president did are racists and fascists and bigots. And that is so hard to swallow. I mean, it actually physically gives you a stomach ache to think about it. I mean, it’s both in terms of the content of the videos and the source of the videos. It matters. It is not okay to just say as they are saying at the White House, ‘well, he was just scrolling on it and hit retweet and didn’t look.’ You’ve got to look! You’re the president.”
CNN also used the opportunity to run the chyron “David Duke Praises Trump’s Anti-Muslim Retweets,” due to a tweet sent out by the former Ku Klux Klan member and Louisiana politician.
